Cultural Experience Collage | Family Art Workshop

Join us for our next in-person Family Art Workshop! While borrowing abstract inspiration from Issei artist, Kenjiro Nomura, we will play with collage and pastel methods to express the felt sense of ways our culture has shaped us. We will incorporate a selection of basic paper shapes, explore various mark-making techniques using chalk pastels and focus on experimentation, personal interpretation, and discovery.
